So, since people keep asking, my better half, Jamie Halavais, soon-to-be-esquire, did pass the New York State bar exam. And yes, she did do well enough on the multi-state that she can eventually be waived in to the D.C. bar. And no, I don’t yet know if she is also sitting for the California Bar.
She’s not done yet: still has to pass the “fitness and character” bits. She’s got her quarter mile down to an acceptable level, and I think she’s a slam dunk for the “character” part. After all, Scooter Libby made it through, and was a managing partner in her law firm [cough] before joining the White House staff. If he passed, I suspect she’ll be fine.
